      The easiest way is to join. We send out information to our members about the conference via our newsletter and by email. However, the other easy way is to just check this website around March. We post news about both our conference and our contest there and update it as the conference approaches. The conference is always held the second weekend of June. We also always take walk-in registrants, so pre-registering is not vital to attending.
